RioCan is appealing zoning restrictions to the OMB in order to replace Sunnybrook Plaza with 13 and 19 storey condominiums

(stating that the development "has a predominantly 8-storey base")

Funding will be applied to the 660 redevelopment appeal and
then to other Leaside OMB matters

News

OMB Pre-hearing July 26

  • LPOA notes from meeting
  • 25 members of the community attended
  • The LPOA requested and was granted Party status by the Chair.  This means that the LPOA will be able to call witnesses and cross-examine the City and the other side's witnesses.  RioCan and the City already had Party status. 
  • Five individuals requested and were granted Participant status, which means they can make a formal submission to the Board. 
  • The Chair REFUSED a request from RioCan and the City for mediation emailed to the Chairman the day before the hearing, as the Board procedures for establishing mediation had not been followed.  From our perspective this was a relief as this might have occurred without the LPOA and residents being part of the discussion.  Now that the LPOA is a Party, in future we will be part of whatever goes on.
  • Time to engage Leaside660 lawyer and planner

What's Next
